    Visited all 50 states?

    All 50 states twice!

    From 1989 until 1996 I visited all 50 states, visiting each twice. This was all on business and I had 4 million frequent flyer miles when I retired.I was forced to take my first vacation in 6 years cause I was addicted to the road.After 3 days of vacation I got my empty suitcase went out to the airport carried my bag around ate a hotdog and went home, I just needed a fix!

    Everyone should see the grand canyon, the blue water of the Florida Keys as well as your capital. I loved each and every state and seeing them made me even prouder to be an American!

    The worst part was 911 in that I had been in the south tower only 3 days earlier. I know all the people I saw probably died.

    In closing the proudest I ever was is when I took my mom to laces she had never been and thought she would never get the chance.
